Historic Homestake Opera House
This spectacular historic performing arts venue is celebrating 103 years and hosts theatre, concerts, movies, private and group tours, weddings, and presentations year-round – all the while fundraising and restoring each year. It was beautifully built in 1914 by the Homestake Gold Mine, and boasted a swimming pool, library, 1,000-seat theater, billiard hall, bowling alley, social hall, game rooms and smoking lounge. The building survived a devastating theater fire in 1984.
